Default connecting monitor to desktop - help? Complete noob..

If I buy this computer.. http://www.amazon.co.uk/Acer-Desktop...pr_product_top

and this monitor.. Samsung S22B150 21.5 inch Widescreen LED Monitor - Gloss Black (1920 x 1080 Full HD, 5ms, VGA): Amazon.co.uk: Computers & Accessories

Will I need any leads/connectors or anything to make the monitor work?

I think I need one of these but just trying to make sure?

http://www.amazon.co.uk/StarTech-DVI...=cm_cr_pr_pb_t

Thanks in advance!

What you need is the monitor cable shown with the Acer info.

Monitors come with the power cable and a vga patch cord. If they don't, you got ripped off.

By reading the description, the monitor has a vga, and the tower itself should be able to connect to it, i dont see why it wouldnt, even if you do get it and if it doesnt connect, buy the adapter right after you find out.
